Who knew that Emmerdale’s Kasim had a body like THIS?

No wonder Finn Barton is so keen!


Emmerdale newcomer Kasim Sabet has recently been making a big impression on Finn Barton and it’s not hard to see why.


Actor Ethan Kai made his debut on the ITV soap in the wake of the multi-car pile-up that left Kasim’s life on the line, since when he’s arrived in the village and struck up a fledgling relationship with Finn.

But what Emmerdale fans haven’t yet glimpsed on screen are the results of Kai’s time in the gym, seen here in Instagram posts showing the actor competing in the Special Forces’ Tough Mudder race and displaying some fake tattoos for a role in the theatre.

Who knew? Usually, the soaps get their hunks to strip off within five minutes of showing up! Plus it looks as though Emmerdale fans perhaps shouldn’t get too used to Kasim being a part of Finn’s life.

Christmas episodes of the soap will see the relationship put in jeopardy when Finn tries to get his new boyfriend to move in.

After the pair spend the night together, Finn raises the idea of Kasim eating Christmas dinner with the Bartons.

But when Emma insists that Kasim is now part of the family and should even live with them, the village newcomer starts to feel suffocated. Is a break-up on the cards?
